It's Over, Babe

Hillary, sweetheart, we're finished here. You asked us, and we said no. You've lost. It sucks, I know; you're a Clinton, and you don't take defeat well. We all know how badly you wanted to make history, how much you wanted us to hear you roar, how much you wanted to rub Bill's nose in it. We all feel your pain. But seriously, it's time to stop.

You've lost the state count. You've lost the popular vote. You're so far behind in the delegate count that it's now all but mathematically impossible for you to even catch up, much less overtake. Yes, you got the "big" states (well, except Texas and Illinois, and Florida which doesn't count and Ohio which technically you split 50/50), and we know you've still got a bare lead in superdelegates, and gosh, that's all just amazing and historical in its own right, and we're all awfully proud of you. But now it's time to go back to New York and shut the fuck up already so we can get on with more important things. Please, babe, don't keep riding this until you leave us with nothing but bitterness and resentment. It'll take a little time for hearts to mend, but we could still be friends. Don't ruin it, sweetie, please.

You go, girl (back to New York, I mean.)
